Sunday Service Times
Why not join us and worship during the COV-19 lockdown?
Join us at 11.00 every Sunday in our telephone conference Service.
Just dial 0333 011 0616 and then, when prompted, put in the code, 4630680#.
Beware, the company which provides the conferencing facility is American. When you dial, you will be asked to put in the code number followed by the pound sign. They are speaking American. The pound sign means hash. Once you have done this, you will be asked to state your name and press the pound sign (hash key) again. This done, you will be there for the Service.
Welcome to the website of the Haverfordwest south group of Congregational and United Reformed Churches.
We are three churches situated in Haverfordwest, Freystrop and Hook who share a joint ministry.
Please enjoy the website and remember that if you would like to visit us in person, you can be sure of a warm reception.
Hello everyone, I hope you are all well. We seem to be coming out of the extreme danger of the pandemic, although we do need to be careful still and use our common sense when in company.
The pain of grief and sadness is always with us, yet we find ways of coping. There is a lot of joy to be found if we look closely enough. Jesus assures us of that. He said, “All things whatsoever you pray and ask for, believe that you have received them already, and you shall have them”.
None-the-less there is pain in the world among humans and among the creatures of the earth. Often the pain of the creatures is the result of human activity. Animals are sensitive to pain and cruelty. So are we all . To see suffering saddens us deeply. Does God feel the same? I believe so. We read in the Creation story that God was pleased with what He had created. “God saw that it was good”. For God is intimately bound in a relationship with His Creation and therefore God suffers when Creation suffers. When Creation is abused God is abused and God feels the sadness. We are told in Genesis that God made a beautiful Garden for the humans, Adam and Eve. It was a beautiful place for them to enjoy with their Creator. It would only be changed if they disobeyed God. They did and the close relationship they had with God ended. They hid themselves from God and you can feel His pain and sadness when He called to the man, “Where are you?” He still calls us. Human- ity still hides from the Spirit of the great Creator because disobedience is in our DNA.
However, God is Love and His love searches all the hiding-places that human beings use daily, to bring us back to the beautiful place He made for us. Jesus called it the Kingdom of Heaven which can be enjoyed here on earth through the spiritual relationship God has with us and we have with Him. That relationship brings tremendous joy and peace even at the most difficult times in life.
I do hope you have a lovely summer and worry and stress will be at a minimum for us all.
Love to you all from Rev Steve and family.
"I am the resurrection and the life. whoever believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die."
John 11 v 25
